Bearing in mind that this is a step up from the 12" BS that I sold, I am very impressed with this BS. My grand plan involved upgrading the jointer, then the BS and then the DP. Life being what it is, I got the DP first (great deal thanks to the LOML). I then robbed the jointer piggy bank when a deal came along on this BS as I've mentioned in other posts.
The BS purchase moved the sub panel project up (and I had just gotten the shop somewhat back in shape). I've only added enough stuff so far to power the BS, TS, DC and some wall and ceiling outlets. My lighting is in the tank but, it'll do for now:
The little orange things on the wires inside the panel are one of my dad's ideas; you keep a little insulation from your romex, write the circuit info on them and slip them over the hot wires before you tie them down.
I haven't even gone through a decent setup effort but wanted to see where I was starting from:
It runs quite smooth and the ShopFox mobile base is reasonably stable although if it hadn't come as a set I would prefer something a little more heavy duty.
It does cut a dashing figure compared to my old 12":
I'll do a more complete review following some serious clean up around the shop. There's electrical parts and spoil on every flat surface in the shop and some in the house . I've got drywall dust in everything from tearing down the one wall. Didn't somebody post the question of when is your shop "done". . . . ? Its a journey, not a destination.
